I'm planning a new 3-lap track where I'd like blockers to dictate the route taken on each lap. So, for example, Lap1 would be on the main track, Lap2 on a shortcut, Lap3 on a different shortcut. There wouldn't necessarily be other shortcuts - well, maybe the occasional corner-cutter - but the main idea is that each lap is very different.
Is there a 'best way' of doing this? I imagined at first that all it involves is linking triggers to sets of blockers, but something in my head is telling me that's problematical. If the junction of main track/shortcut has two sets of blockers (one for each route) then how can you place triggers to both open one route and close off the other?

The first path is initially down, but an invisible trigger which activates on the 2nd lap before the finish line activates the blocker for the max, 10 seconds, so everytime someone passes, it goes up.
The second is initially up, but an invisible trigger at the same spot as the first only works on the second lap and goes down for 10 seconds. To block that path on the third lap, add a second layer of blockers which only go up on the third lap for 10 seconds with an invisible trigger at the same spot at the previous two.
The third is identical to the second, but on the third lap and no need for a second layer of blockers.
Of course, this isn't 100% safe, if someone passes the blockers when they're going down after 10 seconds... or lag.
You can lower the time if you want.
I hope this helps!

Hi I did this on an oold trcak i did ages ago called Change of Dcene... it works but as previous post say the blockers go down after 10 seconds so not everyone will be forced aronud the way you want.. have a look at it and you'll see what i mean
